Draft Policy ARIN-2019-9: Clarify Interactions Between NRPM 4.10 IPv6 
Transition Space Requests and NRPM 4.1.8.2 Unmet Needs Requests

Problem Statement:

It has been observed that an organization requesting IPv4 resources 
under NRPM Section 4.10, Dedicated IPv4 Block To Facilitate IPv6 
Deployment, can also request similar or the same resources under Section 
4.2.1.8, Unmet Needs. This proposal aims to remove this potential for 
duplicate requests under these sections.

Policy Statement:

Section 4.1.8.2, Unmet Needs:

Current language: Any requests met through a transfer will be considered 
fulfilled and removed from the waiting list.

Proposed language (New text in italics):

Any requests met through a transfer or an allocation request fulfilled 
under Section 4.10 will be considered fulfilled and removed from the 
waiting list.

Comments:

Timetable for implementation: Immediate

Anything Else

Currently, organizations can receive no more than a /24 at a time under 
Section 4.10. However, Proposal ARIN-PROP-266, submitted by Chris Tacit 
and myself, could potentially allow an org to receive up to a /21 under 
that section, widening the potential for abuse by “double-dipping” 
waiting list and transition space requests. As such, this proposal 
should be considered in that context.
